    Hey everyone, I know this isn't pertinent to a macbook (this is on a powerbook G4 alum. 15") but I really need help. I'm trying to replace my inverter board and I have come to a step in my repair that I am unsure of. I need help figuring out how to remove the display cable from the logic board connector. I don't want to break this part so if anyone has had experience removing a display cable from it's logic board connector, please help a noob out. If anyone can link me to a video or explain what motion or where I should be pulling from that would be great. Thanks a bunch.

    Slide a fingernail or tweezer under those little tabs. You pull them and they'll unclamp from the cable.

    Sweet thanks for the help. Took me a few hours to figure out on my own that the connector slides out and not up, lol. Eventually got to the inverter board. I couldn't find the spot on the bluetooth cable to detach it so I couldn't fully remove the TFT display. Anyway, got it replaced, and now the once unusable display shines brightly.
